Planet Cancer is the community of young adults with cancer you come to when you need someone who's been there to understand dating with cancer, facing mortality, quitting school, losing your fertility or just plain griping about the unfairness of it all. Planet Cancer’s mission is to connect young adults with each other, to empower them and to help them access support and resources they wouldn’t have known about otherwise. We’re also here to raise our voices in the medical and research communities on behalf of young adults; to say: Young adults DO get cancer. We DO have unique needs. Our survival rates are NOT improving. Don’t let us fall through the cracks for ONE MORE MINUTE.
So, welcome to Planet Cancer--we're glad you're here. Well, not really. But you know what we mean.
Camps, support groups, online social networking, events and more--throughout the U.S.
